“seaside prairies, spectacular vistas, & secluded cove beaches”
This corridor is a 12 mile, forested, linear park with a rugged, steep coastline interrupted by small sand beaches. This park was named in honor of Samuel H. Boardman, the first Oregon Parks superintendent. He and others of his generation felt this shining coastline should be saved for the public. What gems they gave us: admire the 300-year old sitka spruce trees, gaze at the amazing Arch Rock and Natural Bridges, and walk the 27 miles of Oregon Coast Trail that weave through the giant forests. Seaside prairies, spectacular vistas, secluded cove beaches, rugged cliffs and forested sea stacks come one after the other throughout this park. Stand and ponder the old shell middens and wonder what it was like to live in a Native American village by the Pacific Ocean.
Enormous cliffs, tunnels, epic little islands. Highly recommend it! Park at the natural bridges area and take the left trail an take first right, or the right trail and take first left. Your mind will be blown!
